Renovating and interior design is making the best possible use of your available space

One of the main areas people wish to update and change in their home is storage. We never have enough, and what we do have isn’t designed to its full potential. In 2021 international brand Komandor saw a huge increase in homeowners transforming their smallest bedroom into a spacious walk-in wardrobe – and in ireland that was the pokey awkward box room. Using the spare small bedroom as a walk in wardrobe creates more space in your bedroom, keeps you organised, and makes putting the laundry away an easier task. The clothes you own are right in front of you, making it a lot easier to put looks together.

Sliding wardrobes are ideal for bedroom alcoves – as a bespoke specialist in design and installation Komandor creates a functional space that is tailored to your, your home, and your lifestyle.

Renovating is obviously daunting. Here are some tips and advice to make it easier.

• Firstly, make a list of improvements (however big or small ) you would love to make to your home.

• Do any of these improvements need planning permission? On this note also think about neighbours' permission. – let them know in advance that you are beginning renovations.

• Get quotes. If a company offer a free design service, like Komandor does, book the appointment. Get the professionals out to measure, and even design something up, so you can see what the finished design will look like. This will give you a realistic quote rather than an estimate.

• Don’t just look at price, look at quality, timelessness, and service. When you work with experts in the field you have access to their wealth of knowledge and years of experience. They can advise you on the best use of space, materials, and design.

• Don’t just have folders on Pinterest and screenshots of what you love. Print the photos, cut them out of magazines. Buy an A4 sketch pad and make a moodboard for each room.

• Add in bullet points of what you want from that room. If you want the living room to be super cosy, then that structured modern sofa you love might not be practical – alternatively a scatter back sofa in similar colours of fabrics could be perfect.

• Bring photos or videos of the room to show furniture store staff to give them a feel of your room.

• Don’t be afraid to bring your mood board scrapbook into showrooms with you and ask if they have something similar instore.

• When you bring samples of fabric, paint, wood, tiles, carpet, or flooring home, make sure to see it in both natural and artificial light before making your decision. Also looks at them in different parts of the room.

• Ask in every showroom for advice. The staff have been trained and spend every day with the products and know their product and stock.
